Calibre compile error on linux

Hi all,

I am trying to compile a pristine calibre source, and get the following error:
Code:
...
Installing resources to /home/norbert/Development/calibre/calibre-3.3.0/staging-root/share/calibre
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 119, in <module>
    sys.exit(main())
  File "setup.py", line 104, in main
    command.run_all(opts)
  File "/home/norbert/Development/calibre/calibre-3.3.0/setup/__init__.py", line 236, in run_all
    self.run_cmd(self, opts)
  File "/home/norbert/Development/calibre/calibre-3.3.0/setup/__init__.py", line 232, in run_cmd
    cmd.run(opts)
  File "/home/norbert/Development/calibre/calibre-3.3.0/setup/install.py", line 142, in run
    self.run_postinstall()

    manifest=self.manifest)
  File "/home/norbert/Development/calibre/calibre-3.3.0/src/calibre/linux.py", line 674, in __init__
    scripts = cPickle.loads(P('scripts.pickle', data=True))
  File "/home/norbert/Development/calibre/calibre-3.3.0/src/calibre/utils/resources.py", line 73, in get_path
    with open(fpath, 'rb') as f:
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/norbert/Development/calibre/calibre-3.3.0/resources/scripts.pickle'
Any idea how to fix that?

Thanks

Norbert

You appear to be missing scripts.pickle, which is present in the source tarball

Code:
tar tvf /mnt/external/calibre/3.3.0/calibre-3.3.0.tar.xz| grep scripts.pickle
-rw-r--r-- kovid/kovid     360 2017-06-23 09:34 calibre-3.3.0/resources/scripts.pickle

Interesting, I have a calibre-3.3.0.tar.gz from github form this link https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibr.../v3.3.0.tar.gz and it doesn't contain the .pickle file.

I am now downloading the calibre-3.3.0.tar.xz from this link https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibr...e-3.3.0.tar.xz and will retry.

Thanks for the quick answer

Norbert

github's auto-generated source tarballs are not appropriate. Always use the source tarball URL given on the linux download page.

More specifically, the tarballs that Kovid distributes from the download page are more than just the source code from version control (which is what Github's autogenerated archives will get you).

The tarballs on the calibre download page (and also mirrored on Fosshub and, for the latest release only, on Github), contain a number of build artifacts, for example, the compiled localizations, the transpiled rapydscript-to-js code for the server, etc.

You can create all this yourself, by using:
Code:
python2 setup.py bootstrap
This is what I do in my Arch Linux build recipe for the calibre-git package, which, since it builds from a git checkout and always uses the latest git master, cannot rely on the pregenerated release artifacts in a release tarball.

Thanks, that is useful, but I will not build from git for now.

I have adjusted the calibre Debian package to ship all the man pages as produced during build, as well as the .desktop files and icons. The patch is sent already to the maintainer and I hope he includes it soon.

Thanks

Norbert
